But not all linux installs will use desktops so why make them part of
the standard-base? If you were creating a standard base for an end-user
system your argument would make sense, but take into consideration that
there are alot of servers, enbeded systems, etc. that don't use a
desktop (or even want one). Desktops are up to the distributors, they
are not part of the standard.
